Reduce risk of heat exhaustion
The risk of heat exhaustion is especially high for sporting events, which require high levels of physical activity, usually in direct sunlight. When the heat creeps above 90 degrees, it's easy to get overheated quickly. A misting tent enhances the body's natural cooling process by forming a fine mist that quickly evaporates from your skin, cooling the body. When the mist is there, your body has another water source to help you cool down, so your risk of dehydration decreases. Of course, it's still essential for athletes and spectators to drink plenty of water, but a misting tent effectively helps the body cool down and prevents heat-related illnesses. Giving your athlete the opportunity to cool down in your misting tent when they have a short break from the game. The comfortable temperatures will help them cool down and get the energy they need to keep playing. Make things even better with sweet and salty snacks that replace electrolytes lost through sweat.

Combining shade with a cooling mist creates the perfect solution for enjoying the hot summer weather. Many users of our misting tents report a temperature decrease of 15-20 degrees. In 90-degree weather, you'll stay as cool and comfortable as you would on a breezy 75-degree day. Watching your child play a sport is enjoyable even in hot weather when you have a shady, comfortable spot to cool down.
Make sporting events enjoyable for the whole family
Even for the most supportive families, watching sports in hot weather isn't fun. If grandparents or very young children attend the event, they have a greater risk for heat-related illness. Young children sunburn easily and don't always pick up on their body's cues to slow down and cool off. With a misting tent, you'll have a safe, comfortable spot for the whole family. Keep everyone safe in the shade of a misting tent, and enjoy the cooler temperatures provided by the mist.
